I went out to shoot some rolling shots yesterday of my friends S2000 and came out with these:

On my Mac at home (what I edited them on) they look WAY better then here at work (at work they are kind of dark). :cry:

Im open to comments on how I can improve the shots ... also I know I was shooting too late.

Looking good and the idea is there.

#1 seems to have suffered from camera shake or your friend moved. Did you have any mounts, minipods for your camera during this?

#2 IMO looks underexposed as I cant really make out the tyres to the road so its ended up giving it a photoshop feel to it.

If you want to do some rolling shots, try looking at a window mount like below.

Would you be able to post the exif info?

Thanks for the feedback.

All shots where hand held. I have a 3 suction cup mount, but didnt even think of using it as it moves in the wind a little. I know if I shot the photos when it wasn't so dark they probly would have been better. I'll get the exif info off the file when I get home as its on my Mac.

On my Mac they are not near as dark ...so when I edited them in Photoshop they looked really good ... but when I got to work today they look def underexposed on my PC.

Thanks rich. Lack of sleep. Still hyped about drag racing so forgot.

@ M3This

Settings would have worked well in slightly brighter conditions. Look forward to another attempt.

No problem. :)

The one thing I don't like about them is that it makes me miss my old S2000.:mrgreen:

If you use Firefox with a PC you can download the EXIF viewer plugin. Once it's installed you simply right-click on the image and select "View Image Exif Data".

On a mac I use Reveal. Simply drag & drop the image on the desktop and then drag & drop into Reveal.

Nice s2k. Like someone said ....in the first pic..it's underexposed. You could try increasing the iso to 400 and that will allow you to shoot at a faster shutter speed. Since you were shooting in Av mode...try moving the exposure meter up 1/3 stop stop.

For rolling shots..I like to shoot in M but Av works too. My settings are usually f7.1 to f8, shutter speed around 1/25-1/50. You don't have to go so fast either. Iso depends on the amount of light available. All handheld since I dont' have a rig yet. Most of my shots are going around 40-60km/h.

Thanks for the feedback .... I'll def look it to those settings on my next round of rolling shots.

The S2000 above is actually on this months Modified Mag Cover:
